[SciPy-user] Problems installing SciPy

I am new to Python and just downloaded ActivePython on my  
Mac PPC with OS X 10.4.
I added the numpy package (0.9.6-py2.4) and it imports fine. But when  
I try to import scipy (0.4.8-py2.4)
I get an error:

 >>> import scipy
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
   File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.4/lib/ 
python2.4/site-packages/scipy/__init__.py", line 32, in ?
     from numpy import *
   File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.4/lib/ 
python2.4/site-packages/numpy/f2py/__init__.py", line 6, in ?
     import tempfile
   File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.4/lib/ 
python2.4/tempfile.py", line 33, in ?
     from random import Random as _Random
ImportError: cannot import name Random

importing random works fine, so I don't understand what the problem is.
Can anyone provide any clues?
